Abstract [en]

This essay revisits some of the more well-cited works of close to a century of scholarly and biographical efforts on the author Ernest Hemingway. It aims to re-evaluate and test the general assumptions, descriptions and specifications of his textual style and depiction of women through modern corpus stylistic methods. Through parallels between contextual material and periods of publication this project will explore the degree to which the common assumptions and descriptions of Hemingway’s fiction hold true, and to which degree they can legitimately be treated as general descriptors of a literary style in development throughout a career of publication spanning a large part of the 1900’s, both in terms of generalizations and definitions of changes taking place at specific times during the author’s career. This essay will also define unresolved conflicts in the long history of Hemingway criticism and contribute towards finding an answer for the question of whether the descriptions could be considered generally correct, or defining the period of a description’s relevance in regards to the author’s published material. In the end, this essay intends to provide a further understanding of Hemingway’s style, providing basis for new and more specific academic work on his authorship in the future.
